The Charting Menu can be accessed by right clicking on a tooth within the patients chart. Notice that the tooth will be highlighted to confirm that the correct selection was made. The charting menu will act as the platform for entering any procedures or annotations to the patient's record. Before using the charting menu, select the correct view within the dental tab. Procedures that were completed outside of the office should be recorded in the Patient Chart. Procedures completed in the office should be charted within the Completed Procedures. Items that are planned for the future should be recorded under the treatment plan chart.
Missing teeth can be graphically removed with the Toggle Missing node in the Charting Menu. This option should not be used for teeth that have been extracted. Simply select Toggle Missing and the tooth will be removed from the chart.
When a tooth is toggled as missing, a Clinical Note entry will be created in the Clinical Note Table. Additional information can be added to this note. If a tooth should not be marked as missing, simply select the entry from the Clincial Note Table and press the delete button. If the tooth was marked as missing but has now grown in right click on the clinical note and invalidate. This will return the tooth to the patient's chart without removing any information from the patient's chart.
